Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus Padmaavat is all set to hit the screens today. The movie featuring actors Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh is one of the most anticipated films of the year. The special IMAX 3D shows of the magnum opus are all set to mesmerise the movie buffs. It is yet to be seen if the film manages to win hearts.
The movie is receiving good reviews from critics. Ranveer is heaped with praises for playing the role of monstrous Alauddin Khalji to perfection. Deepika and Shahid did justice to their roles. The film also features Aditi Rao Hydari and Jim Sarbh in pivotal roles. Chances are high that the movie will do wonders at the box office.
Padmaavat has been in controversy ever since it started to roll. Various religious groups accused the director of distorting the historical facts. However, Bhansali made it clear that there is nothing controversial in the film that could harm the respect of Rajput community.
The film was earlier set to fight the box office battle with Akshay Kumar starrer PadMan. However, after the director requested Khiladi Kumar, the release date of R. Balki’s directorial venture was pushed to February 9 and Padmaavat got the solo release.
